OAK HILL– An Oak Hill man has been arrested on charges of sexually abusing a minor child.

On October 24, 2016 a young child disclosed to a school counselor that she had been repeatedly subjected to sexual abuse on multiple occasions. After receiving notification of this through the school, Detectives from the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office and case workers from the Child Protective Services Division of DHHR immediately initiated an investigation into these allegations. The child underwent a forensic interview at the Just For Kids, Inc. Child and Youth Advocacy Center in Oak Hill. During this interview the child provided a very detailed disclosure of sexual abuse. According to the criminal complaint filed in connection with this matter, this sexual abuse occurred on multiple occasions over a period of several years.

Following an extensive investigation into these allegations, Detectives obtained warrants for the arrest of the alleged perpetrator. Jason Dixon, age 33, of Oak Hill was arrested at his home Friday evening by Deputy T.K. Olson of the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office. He is charged with four counts of Sexual Abuse by a Parent, Guardian, Custodian or Person in a Position of Trust, two counts of First Degree Sexual Assault and two counts of First Degree Sexual Abuse. All eight charges are felonies. He was arraigned in the Fayette County Magistrate Court, where he was released on a $50,000.00 bond posted by First Action Bail Bonds.

Dixon is already registered as a Sexual Offender in the State of West Virginia. He was previously convicted of Third Degree Sexual Assault. The victim in that case was a twelve year-old child. The alleged victim in this current case is a female under the age of twelve.
